What's The Best Tex-Mex Menu Staple? A HuffPost Deathmatch

Who would win in a fight to the culinary death, a burly burrito or a spry and light taco? If you're visualizing these two foods in a boxing ring, you've got the wrong idea. We're talking about taste. Does a filling-packed burrito taste better than a taco? Do enchiladas with their over-the-top melted cheese have them both beat?

If you're a hard-core Tex-Mex fan, you've definitely got a favorite menu item. So put down your taco and fight for your preferred combination of cheese, meat and tortilla -- or just plain guacamole. (And by fight we mean cast a vote for your Tex-Mex item of choice in the deathmatch round below.)

Here's how a deathmatch works:

Starting today at 9:00am Eastern, vote for your first-round picks.

Tomorrow, August 15th at 12:00am Eastern, Round Two will begin.

Wednesday, August 16th, at 12:00am Eastern you'll be able to start voting in Round Three.

Thursday, August 17th, at 12:00am Eastern Round Three is the face-off between the top two tex-mex items.

Now let the battle begin!
